Get on the bus
This is the show where I got on the bus. I don't recall many of the details of the show since I didn't know much of the music yet.
Are there any audience tapes of this show?

This was my first Dead show, so I hold it in higher regard than an objective listener to this recording might. Nevertheless, Bobby is especially insufferable at several points during this show. To wit, during "Stranger"and "Round and Round" and then his perfunctory singing in "Looks Like Rain" is a bit annoying as well.

stagger lee/ row james
the return of stagger lee and a rare for the period row james. not one of one of the better sbd's for latter 82, no fat bass, uneven mix. the sbd's post greek in may are generally better than the 1st 4 months of the year with better mixes, fat bass etc the preceding kansis city show and this sbd revert to uneven mixes,little bass etc

Better This Time
This was my second show, and I always considered it the weakest that I saw (although a very fun experience, thanks to the audience). This beautiful SBD does help to redeem it. The house was so bad that we couldn't even tell when the band started playing in the beginning - occasionally the bass drum would bounce off the back wall after about 3 seconds. The ability to hear the great interplay between band members makes for a completely different experience. Thank you for a momento of a great adventure!

Tumbled down shack in Bigfoot County..
Crisp,clean sound here..Nice sets..but nothing over the top..Listen the Bobby during Stranger sing "Feel like a Stranger..Ain't no Lone Ranger" WTF..sometimes he just kills me with the shit that comes out of his mouth..Also a kickin' Brown Eyed Women..You can feel Jerry is having fun with it..along with a sweet Row Jimmy!! A interesting start to 2nd set with Never Trust A Woman..I like it's placement after space not to start the show??

St Louis Blues
This concerts starts with "Looks Like Rain". The rest is warm up. Garcia's voice was off, but Weir was on, which is often the case of the group - some on, some off. This was not one of the rare concerts when they all were strong. They were very slow, bluesy and mellow, maybe even tired. The jams are listenable and even reproducible for those of us who try to recapture Garcia leads. Nothing extraordinary here, but very good listening.

Stupidly Hot!!!!! Where is everyone????
Guys you have to check this out - One of the best CC Riders ever and an incredible first set. Shocker start to finish. This and the Greek show with the Hells Angels and 4/16 are the hands down best of the whole year - This is a sick show. They loved this place....
I remember Brent being introduced and he did a solo on the organ. I remember to this day the disticnt pop in my ears at the begining of the show. I was turned on to the Dead in New Mexico, 1980 ,on a back packing trip. I fell in love with the long melodic jams from the tape a gir gave me. This show is better than i remember.
Thank's to the generosity of the Band who allowed the taping of their shows and the sharing of music we can all enjoy their music for years to come!
Enopugh with fantasy football why not a fantasy Dead set!

great first set
proviso: i give this show 5 stars based on great performance quality of the first set and crisp sound quality of the download.
the show starts with a decent stranger (nothing to write home about unless the tour bus broke down and you have nothing else to do). decent FOTD, brent sounds pretty good on the piano setting. the real action starts with c.c. rider. the leads by brent and jerry are down and dirty blues, brent leaning heavy on the B3, bob's vocals are ferocious, and jerry and bob turn it up loud at the end. i'm not sure how to describe brown-eyed women except to say the guitar playing is vintage garcia, i'm never really sure where the leads begin and end. the band is tight on mama tried > mexicali blues with great vocals by weir and fantastic leads by garcia. next comes my favorite version of jimmy row. by '82, the haunting fragility, more pronounced in later years, had started to creep into garcia's voice, backed up perfectly by brent and bob. great LLR with jerry playing rain drops on the first lead. decent stagger lee, a song i always look forward to because of the funny lyrics. promise land closes the set with garcia chopping loud chuck berry chords and finishing strong.
one other note: the second set starts unusually with a grinding version of never trust a woman. if you like this song, check out the version played second set at long beach 8-28-81. the band plays a nice version of the wheel, but when brent starts leading into never trust a woman, jerry backs him off and jams out the wheel for another three or four minutes. when they finally go into NTAW, garcia lays down some leads that IMO best define his blues power. VERY HOT!!
